Rainier Cancellation/Refund Policy

Note: Alpine Ascents International highly recommends trip cancellation insurance for all programs. Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

Each deposit, regardless of amount, includes a $300.00 non-refundable registration fee.

  • Full refunds, less registration fee, will be provided 120 days prior to course start date.
  • 50% refunds, less registration fee, will be provided 90-119 days prior to course start date.
  • No refunds will be provided 89 or fewer days prior to course start date.
  • All cancellations/refund requests must be made via email to our office within the deadlines stated above.
  • If Alpine Ascents cancels or reschedules a program (prior to the start of the trip), all fees are refundable and/or transferable.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, including trip interruption or postponement, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Trip cancellation insurance allows you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents, or when extreme circumstances prevent trip services from being provided.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

The program far exceeded all expectations I originally had. The gear check was efficient and informative, and the organization of the whole program was impeccable. Our guides were all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They taught us a tremendous amount in a short amount of time, while at the same time were very conscious of some of the ‘slower’ members of the group.
